Juniors prior to licensing go through  rigid pre race procedures under the watchful eye of both ANDRA and IHRA officials [depending which state they are in] Some of these procedures include getting fitted in the car comfortably, donning safety gear ie helmet, gloves and boots. Fitting of the safety harness, checking braking and ignition switch. Here 11 yo Connor goes through the process at car inspection with Dad. They are also required to carry out these procedures blindfolded before their first run on the strip.
